POST FROM BREC:

The February 20th workday at Comite River Park was a great success. A clay dirt mixture was laid over the gravel bed on the R&B and HeadHunter sections of trail. This will help to anchor the gravel to prevent it from being pushed off the tread over time. It also presents a smoother more natural surface.

A second group worked to extend the reroute between Rollercoaster and River Run. The trail was routed on the higher ridge to aid in drainage and create a more interesting, fun line. The large turnout allowed the group to then begin another planned reroute of the Point. Recent rain and flooding had washed away several large trees, taking a good bit of trail out in the process. The reroute allowed us to reclaim some of this section while also creating a more interesting line with a better view of the Comite river.

A third group of St Joseph’s Academy students walked the entire trail trimming and picking up trash. At 5.5 miles that’s a lot of walking.

Thanks to everyone who came out to make this day a success in creating a better trail system for Baton Rouge:
